SYRACUSE, N.Y. — James Southerland broke out of a slump with 21 points and Brandon Triche had 19 to lead No. 4 Syracuse over Canisius 85-61 on Saturday night in the Gotham Classic. Michael Carter-Williams added 12 points and 14 assists as Syracuse (9-0) extended its home winning streak to 29 games - the longest in the nation - and moved head coach Jim Boeheim within one victory of 900. Mike Krzyzewski (936) and Bob Knight (902) are the only Division I men's coaches to reach that milestone. The Orange's next game is at home against Detroit on Monday night.
